Android 1.6 & 2.0
How long should it take to get 2.0? Will it definitely be available?
Does 2.0 make the phone less sluggish?
Android is a mess, and this is why it's going to fail.

But by then there will be a google phone like paulc91316 is talking about and all these customers will g...
Why so sad?
I think you're missing the point about Android...
IÃ¢â‚¬™m in the San Francisco market but my territory is North America. I travel 3 weeks of every month and can say there is a noticeable difference between coverage. I loved the 3GS as a device, but hated it as a phone.
My calls with customers are many times 30+ minutes long, AT&T would drop many, many of those. Short calls no problem. Data no problem either. WhoÃ¢â‚¬™s doing to know if a packet has been dropped anyway?
I always carried either a Sprint or Verizon ...
The day of nothing working
Any difference with the firmware update.
Isn't funny how so many people have so many idiosynchrosies regarding their cell phone(s)?
